James R. Healy over at USA Today actually likes the new XRS version of the current Corolla. I'll admit to not being a Toyota fan in general, although some models are exceptional like the Solara coupe, but does anyone expect to pony up $21,000 for this car fully loaded? That's Dodge SRT-4 money. That's Ford Focus SVT cash. A few more grand gets you a Subaru WRX. While the XRS isn't aimed at being as sporty as these tuner-like compacts, it sure is asking the buyer to overlook a lot of its shortcomings for even the base price of $18,000. And it sure doesn't turn any heads.
